I'm still working on the new website. Most of the posts (including artworks, blog posts and 365 posts from 2009, 2010 and 2011) are missing. These posts will return eventually. Thanks for your patience!
I did a few Christmas themed sketches yesterday and today:
Still sick. Created this snowman for fun.
Something I can't get my head around is the fact that someone found it funny to write "Jew" on our (borrowed) car. I woke up this morning, pulled the blinds and noticed this. Somehow I have the idea someone is trying to bully. I can't prove anything. But it's just so typical. Our downstairs neighbors car seemed to have wiped windows. Maybe their car had the same thing, I'm not sure. We didn't have a chat with them yet about this. You may have read about this a few times before, we have quite some issues with our neighbors on one side of the building. They play extremely loud music. We tried contacting them, asking nicely if they can think about other neighbors as well, we contacted the landlord, we called the police. The downstairs neighbors also experience nuisance. And the landlord does too. So we're not the only ones. Now I can't speak for the downstairs neighbors, but the landlord seemed to have some mysterious issues. Some letters were ripped off of their company logo (they have an architect company downstairs), and someone threw paint at the building (of course, when no one was looking ). Somehow I feel less safe now. I don't know about other countries. But in this country "jew" is a normal word, but it's also used to call people names. A bit like "nigger". Many people do not appreciate the usage of these words. And when these words are written on your car, even when it is in snow, you feel offended. I'm not Jewish, but that's not the point. I am not happy about this. Trying to let it go, but it annoys me!!
I woke up today and noticed quite some snow outside. It's nothing compared to some other places at the moment but for our country it's rare enough to have snow. I made some pics from inside our living room.
We went outside with Seth to let him experience the snow. He really enjoyed it, even though it was very cold.
Seth didn't want to go home anymore as you can see on the pictures.
I've been very busy today with all sorts of things. But I've been mainly busy decorating the windows. I've been meaning to do this for quite some time but I just kept putting it off. So this morning, I grabbed some cardboard and started drawing items I liked. When I had a few nice items, I started to cut them out. I already had some generic Christmas stencils I created last year. Some examples can be seen here. Since I'm a huge gamer and fan of Sims, I felt I had to do something with a plumbbob and Freezer bunny as well. It wasn't easy getting the snow on nicely with all the tiny, separate elements. But I did it. It looks great if you ask me.
So today I felt creative, that's why I created a bunch of winter goodies for MacDesperate! See the preview below. If you're interested, pay a visit to MacDesperate to download these awesome and free goodies for your desktop, iphone and psp!
In March of this year, I created a Winter Wonderland vector art piece. It's almost December now. And yesterday I was searching for some vector style and minimalistic winter or Christmas wallpapers. But I just couldn't find what I was looking for! There weren't that many recently created winter wallpapers either.
So here they are! A set of wallpapers for my loyal visitors. Feel free to contact me, if you would like to request more/different sizes. These are the sizes available:
